#Dads Make A Big Difference
Dads Advancing Data on the development of Singapore Children and Adolescents Now!
The DADSCAN! (Dads Advancing Data for the development of Singaporean Children and Adolescents Now!) project seeks to fill an important gap in understanding the multi-faceted ways in which dads and partners support child health and development throughout the early life course -- from preconception through adolescence. These range from biological and epigenetic contributions through social support of the mother to interactions and behavioral modelling in the child.
Multimodal data across three Singaporean cohorts, focus group and key informant interviewing, and social media data mining will be combined with cutting edge quantitative and qualitative methods focused on understanding and developing relevant interventions for the Singaporean context.
